Parent Pay

At The Vale Academy we request that all parents pay for academy trips, uniform, music lessons and dinner money top ups using our e-payment method. This can be done using a secure website called ParentPay or by using cash at local shops where you see the PayPoint logo.

If you have not got your activation details please contact us to request a "ParentPay Activation Letter".

Once logged into ParentPay you are able to view items available to your child. You are also able to merge accounts if you have more than one child at The Vale Academy. Further information & support is available from the files at the bottom of this page, if you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.


If you would prefer to pay for items using cash you are able to use the PayPoint option; should you wish to use this option you will need to request a barcoded letter for each item you wish to pay for. This letter can be taken to any shop carrying the PayPoint logo & will permit you to pay by cash.
